It's simple: we're just four guys who are just gonna come out there and just play as hard as we can

Whenever I'm musically frustrated and can't think of a middle 8 or failing at lyrics etc, I try to remember that astonishing bit of generous wisdom and just drop everything and just play as hard as I can
must spread rep

The Kroeger interview that stuck with me the most was on Much Music when they first became big and the interviewer asked, "what do you think about some of the backlash that you guys are facing?" and he says in this condescending matter of fact tone, "Nickelback DOES NOT suck... You may not like Nickelback, but Nickelback does not suck. 30 million people would agree that Nickelback does not suck. We spend a lot of time on songwriting and musicianship, so it's okay if you don't like Nickelback but Nickelback does not suck"

It's funny, then years later they'd feature a montage with Billie Joe Armstrong and all sorts of other famous artists making fun of Nickelback spliced in with the Kroeger footage.

was morrissey mentioned. i don't know anything about his recent musical output but in terms of being a egomaniacal, hypocritical, despotic asshole racist, he's on billy's level.

How 'bout Metallica?

Metallica was probably the most badass group ever in the late 80s after masterpieces like Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All and then the 90s came and James, Lars and the gang seemingly tried to do everything in their power to fuck up the group's status.

Starting with the commercial Black album, which alienated a lot of hardcore fans, then the dreaded Load and ReLoad albums, which were rock music's equivalent of the Star Wars prequels, then the boring Garage Inc., S&M and "I Disappear" releases finishing out the 90s and going into the early 2000s... Jason Newsted leaving, the Napster PR fiasco, probably the worst album of all time in St Anger and then the unimpressive and poorly mastered Death Magnetic

Metallica's career, which stated off almost flawlessly, is really a career of bad decisions and fuck ups from about 1991 to present day (though admittedly, I kinda like Hardwired for what it is, and there certainly have been some cool songs from the group such as "Until It Sleeps", "Unforgiven" and "Nothing Else Matters" to name a few).

Most teenagers at this point probably know Metallica more for its failures than its successes... Kinda like Billy.

Nah Metallica are always going to have legions of people pouring out to see them. They can still sell large venues and headline festivals. They're set for life. You're always going to have diehard fans who show up no matter what bad stuff they put out, always going to have the oceans of drunk shirtless bros heaving through the crowd, elbowing people in the ribs and somehow still carrying five pitchers of beer.

I want to go sit down in a cathedral and behold sunn. Now that sounds like a concert.

one more little thing you forgot:

James Hetfield turning from one of the most quintessential hard rock singers around, into arguably the most weak/annoying voice in rock&roll

but i agree hard with this. they're a band who made like 75% garbage in their career, it's just that the 25% really is deserving of all the fame they still have.
